Steve’s Bak‘s 1987 sequel to the hilarious Hercules, God and Heroes is just as difficult and frustrating as its predecessor. But just as much fun!
Graphically, Gods and Heroes is a tiny bit better than the awful-looking Hercules, but not by much. It still looks like a dog’s dinner. But the key thing with this – as was the key thing with Hercules – is that Gods and Heroes is playable and fun. The feel of jumping around is good, even if the endless traps and tricks are a nightmare.
Gods and Heroes is masochistic gaming. You play it to torture yourself. Hopefully, to eventually beat it. And there are 50 screens in total, so good luck with that.
